A collection of porcelain wildflowers and forest treasures in glass test tubes.
“Summer meadow”, a vintage bell jar with typical summer wildflowers such as knapweed, buttercup, dandelion, tiny daisies, selfheal and narrow plantain.
“Fairytale Garden”, inspired by the Irish wildflowers. Hawthorn, bluebells, ferns, shamrock, helleborine and foxgloves are the main characters in this fairytale garden.
These typical wildflowers of the Emerald Isle are most suitable to tell an enchanting story…
This bell jar “Spring blooms” celebrates the beauty and freshness of spring. When spring has arrived, everything seems to turn from bare to verdant in a wink of an eye: green shoots flare into full leaf and everywhere you look new life is popping up. It’s a season of hope and growth!
Snowdrops, fritillary and mascara are showing off their delicate beauty. And the tiny liver flowers lighten the world with their bright yellow petals.
“Blooming fall”, a bell jar with autumn plants and flowers such as blackberries, Kashmire sage, rosehip, echinacea and leaves.
“Seeds of abundance”, a bell jar filled with beautiful seedpods from poppies, plantain, corn-cockle, self-heal, knapweed and the cuckoo flower.
In this “English meadow” we take a walk across the English meadow as it can reveal many wonderful surprises. Just walk softly through the velvet grass and look carefully…
… and you’ll notice quaking grass and daisies waving in the wind, a solitary bee orchid, delicate primroses, fritillary and the funny pasqueflowers.
“White winter song”, tiny birds are singing their winter song while the snow has covered everything with a soft white carpet.
Small footprints of tiny birds in the snow…
“Forest treasures” is an ode to the beauty of the little details of the forest. When one looks carefully there’s a unique miniature world to be found.
“Secrets of the woods” tells a story about the diversity and miracles found in the woods. Have you ever seen a squirrel finding shelter in a toadstool? In these woods everything is possible!
Vintage watches with a porcelain miniature world of moss, ferns, plants, mushrooms and even a tiny squirrel. Instead of watching the time goes by, we’d rather marvel in the beauty of nature as this sets us back in a slow and natural pace. Spending time in nature, slows us down and makes us forget time.
These “Stories of moss” in glass treasure boxes are a tribute to the refined and amazing world of moss and lichen. This miniature world is so often overlooked or ignored but yet an indispensable part of the natural world. By enlarging and making them in porcelain, their details can be admired.
